13.5 cold moulded cruising yacht, analysis of the laminated hull shell.


Although the preliminary design of a cruising yacht seems to lack the challenge of novelty, the subsequent evaluation of the wooden shell structure by first principle calculations proofed to be a valuable gain of knowledge in applied structural analysis. This is not only applying theory studied during the course but also the autodidactic approach to gain deeper knowledge in the mechanics of fibrous materials. In the context of the following report this means that a preliminary design package for a cold moulded sailing yacht is proposed as well as an investigation in its laminated hull shell. The present outcome of the project encourages to further investigations, regarding different angle ply layups and associated effects on stress and strains
